House Republicans have told former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page that she must answer questions before two House committees investigating the Justice Department this week or they will begin the process of holding her in contempt of Congress.

Republicans did, however, ask 25 questions about Strzok's affair with Lisa Page, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer who Strzok exchanged inappropriate text messages with about then-candidate Trump.

Page's lawyer Amy Jeffress told CBS News' Paula Reid that she and Page on Tuesday went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, her former employer, to review the materials that were sent to Congress, but they were not shown any documents after waiting more than three hours.

Napolitano said Wednesday that if Page does, in fact, need more time to prepare, she should be given that time in order to ensure a truthful testimony.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, the Virginia Republican, said Page had known for months about an interview, and the committee would use "all tools at our disposal" to obtain it.

Page's attorney said that she and Page did not have enough time to prepare for the meeting, and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was less than accommodating when they went to go over materials had been given to Congress. Ryan and others have threatened contempt several times over the past year as other witnesses have defied subpoenas in the House intelligence committee's now-closed Russian Federation investigation and as the Justice Department has withheld documents, but they have yet to hold a vote on it. In one of the exchanges, Strzok wrote "we'll stop it" in reference to a potential Trump election win.

Page's lawyer said the committee issued the subpoena on Saturday, July 7, and would have been asking her about material her lawyer said she had not yet been shown. 'She was a part of a mess that they have uncovered over at DOJ.

The [House Judiciary and Oversight] Committees' bullying tactics here are unnecessary.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) called the notification from Page's lawyer "indefensible" in a tweet Tuesday. "Wow, but is anybody really surprised!"

Ryan, asked about Page's decision not to testify Wednesday, said, "I am very disturbed by this". Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!

"How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok?".

He is scheduled to appear again in a public hearing Thursday morning. The report did not find that the conclusions in the Clinton investigation were tainted by political bias.

The 11-hour-long meeting with Strzok was part of Congressional Republicans' skepticism for the FBI's past investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server and the current Mueller probe that has targeted several of Trump's former campaign or administration officials. Trump wrote that Page is an "Ex-FBI LAYER", which is not a thing.
